You can go to sirsi before going to gokarna in sirsi you can enjoy in banavasi, yana, marikamba temple, and there will be rafting stuff there...in kali river after that go to gokarna there you can enjoy in the beaches and visit murudeshwar temple and you can go to scuba diving if the weather is good.in nethrani islands
Chill relax and enjoy the sunset over there! And don’t forget to complete the treks from kudle beach to Pardise beach! Or you can have some boat rides too over there and may be get a chance to watch dolphins!😅😅
I did Gokarna trip this year. It's mostly beaches. But if you like trekking,you can actually trek an entire day with amusing views. And also, sea food is the best during season,however during non-season you will find limited food joints open. Night beach walks are the best. The auspicious Temple is a checklist item in Gokarna. Buy the hippie clothes you find only in Gokarna and enjoy the destination.
